The UCLA gymnastics team will host five home meets in 2006, including the home opener on Jan. 7 against nine-time NCAA champion Utah. Also on tap for the Bruins is a road matchup against defending NCAA champion Georgia on Feb. 26.
To jump-start the 2006 season, UCLA will hold its Meet the Bruins exhibition on Nov. 20 at the John Wooden Center. UCLA officially opens its season on Jan. 3 at the Aloha Gymfest against Oregon State, Arkansas and California before returning home to host the Utes on Jan. 7. Pac-10 dual meets will take place in Pauley Pavilion on Jan. 22 (vs. Oregon State) and Feb. 12 (vs. Washington), while multi-team meets (Arizona/Cal State Fullerton/UC Davis on Feb. 19 and Stanford/San Jose State on Mar. 5) round out the home schedule.
Corvallis, Ore. will be a familiar locale in the post-season, as Oregon State hosts both the Pac-10 Championships on Mar. 25 and the NCAA Championships on Apr. 20-22.
The Bruins return three All-Americans in 2006, including reigning NCAA all-around champion Tasha Schwikert and two-time NCAA champion Kate Richardson. Also returning is balance beam All-American Jordan Schwikert.
